    Clear the file (null it - "> syslog" and reboot. You've probably an
    application or process that's eating memory space.

    I clear the file regularly. Any idea how to find the application causing
    the problem?

    Wouldn't that be apparent from the entries IN the syslog?

    Try ps -ef|grep more from the root prompt and see what's running.
    When was the last time you rebooted??
